We’re exploring ways to gain some added space for our growing family. We’re considering adding on (or digging under) our existing house, as we like the area, the schools, and are comfortable here. We’re currently in the 26 Corridor and we like it, but I’m finding our money goes further if we look in south Beaverton (for example). Now is a great time to buy and we’re exploring the real-estate market. Finding an appropriate neighbourhood is such a chore, and I’m hoping you all can help us here, LazyWeb style. We’re looking for someplace with (in order of priority) good schools, young-family-friendly (high households-with-kids ratio, easy access to parks, bike/pedestrian/dog friendly). We’re hoping for something from 2500 to 3000 sqft with 3+ bedrooms, a den, and a large bonus/play room. Space for my woodshop is a huge plus. We’d prefer not to be on a postage stamp lot (8k sqft lot would be ideal) and would love Craftsman/Bungalow architecture (even if a modern interpretation thereof).
If you have ideas of areas we should explore, please share. Add a comment here, to Facebook, or to Google Plus and let us know what you like about the area.
